Quiet Waterside Paradise
The location of this hotel is sensational. It is right on the water's edge of the Crystal River, and our room had a patio facing the river. The river is very wide here with a view to the nature reserve and the expensive houses on the other side. There is a great variety of wildlife here. A stork came and watched us eat breakfast. The buildings are not in great condition, but everything worked as we needed, and the maid kept the room perfectly clean. Breakfast is fruit and tiny pastries in addition to the drinks which are always available. Best bring along some extras if you like a good breakfast. The attached resturant sells good basic food, with the same great view if you eat on the patio. There is a bar on the pier where they seemed to be having a good time listening to rock music, but no late night noise reached us. Great value for money.
